Packer Brisket and two 8.5lb Butts for overnight on Large, abts on small.

JRWhiteeJRWhitee Posts: 3,704
I have a 13.5lb packer brisket and two 8.5lb Boston Butts I am cooking for my Memorial Day party. I started my Large Egg at 8:00pm and plan to add the Brisket around 9:00 or as soon as I get clear smoke. I will add the Butts around 11:00 after the Brisket shrinks a little so they will all fit on the Large. I plan on eating around 3-4 tomorrow or when the meat dictates.  I cleaned the egg and filled it with my first bag of Rockwood charcoal and added Cherry and Pecan chunks. I usually use Oak with Brisket but didn't care for oak on the last Butts I made. I trimmed the brisket of hard fat this morning and seasoned with kosher salt and cracked pepper, the Butts with Fat Boys Rub, mustard and then more Rub wrapped all in saran wrap and refrigerated. I will post updates as the cook goes on, I have 2 cases of stella and a large bottle of Kettle One to get me through the night. I also bought 25 jalepenos and will fill with cream cheese and wrap in bacon to cook tomorrow after the meat is done and cook some chicken wings on the small for appetizers. Stay tuned.

    Brisket has been on for 2 hours, I wasn't sure how they would all fit but they do. Just added the Butts and set the brisket on top on the inverted rib rack. Temperature is holding steady at 250.

    @JRWhitee‌
    Sounds like a feast fit for a king! Good luck my friend.

    Location- Just "this side" of Biloxi, Ms.

    Status- Standing by.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    Here is the full cook, everything was great. 1 Butt took 11 hours the other 12 and the Brisket 13 hours at 250. Jalepenos were stuffed with cream cheese mixed with 4 Mexican cheese and wrapped with bacon and wings were rubbed with "Fat Mans" Love rub both cooked indirect at 350 for 1 hour. Most was cooked on the Large and did some wings on the Small Egg. First time I used Rockwood and was impressed still had lump after cooking everything, I went with Cherry and Pecan chunks mixed all through the lump. Had about 20 people over including 4 of my daughters friends from USC, more than one person said this was the best BBQ they have ever had, I pointed to the EGGS and said I had lots of help. If you like stuffed Jalepenos the BGE core tool is a must.
